    Bought a new SanDisk 4gb CF card,formatted it in aNikon Coolpix 3100 and the camera message reads "out of memory". Put the card in a card reader on a printer and it read "0 files found".

  • lytn Sep 06, 2010

    Don't have a card reader in my computer.

  • lytn Sep 06, 2010

    Card has a folder named DCIM but the folder has no files in it. It does have a sub folder named 100 Nikon.

  • lytn Sep 06, 2010

    Card has the following: DCIM folder, Misc. folder, and Nikon001.dcs file



    Camera still reads :out of memory:

  • lytn Sep 06, 2010

    I was able to transfer a AUTPRINT.mrk file to the card from another CF card. Therefore I think the card is okay.

  • lytn Sep 06, 2010

    There is no option for camera vs. card memory

  • lytn Sep 07, 2010

    don't know how to set camera in factory default.

  • lytn Sep 07, 2010

    Yes, I had already tried that. I was just told by a camera salesman that my Nikon will only accept cards with 1gb or less memory capacity.

    Do you agree/

Hi!
Unfortunately, The Nikon Coolpix 4300 only supports the FAT16 file system, which can handle up to only 2GB; hence it has no support for any card with a capacity larger than 2GB!

You can try using your new card by attaching it to a computer (using a CF card reader) and create 2 partitions of 2GB into it. It's a nasty way, in my opinion... I'd recommend you buying a 2GB card and trying
to sell/return the 4GB card you've already bought.

Hope this information helps you!
Best regards,
Pelu.

After you format it, put it in your computer. Go to my computer, find the card, make sure it has the file DCIM on it. If not, create a folder and name it that. Than try it in your camera.

    Is there a way that you could transfer firle to that card. In this way, we will identify if the card is working. If you were able to copy/transfer file to the card then there is no problem with the card.

Just bought a 4gb memory card for my cannon eosi rebel - camera says it cannot read the card - does it need to be formatted?


Yes most new cards need to be formatted before they can be read.

If you are having the same issue after formatting, then replace the memory card.

Got s205 coolpix and experiencing problem whnever i put in the SD card.. it always says. card cannot be read.. card that im using is a new one and it is 4gb.. dunno if the problem is in the cam or the...


Actually a 4GB SDHC card should be compatible with an S205, as that camera is new enough to work with SDHC. One thing to try before going through the below linked troubleshooting tips is if you have another card, try it in the camera. If the camera recognizes it, then it's likely that the card you purchased was defective, thus you should return it.

For others reading with similar problems, there are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

I've tried formatting a new san disk 4gb card and still reads "unable to use card" what do i do?


You haven't told us what kind of camera it is, but I can guess at the problem. There are two possibilities.

1. Your camera will only read SD cards, not SDHC cards. You've just bought a new memory card, not noticing that it was SDHC. The new cards don't work in your camera, not because they or the camera are broken, but because they're not compatible.

Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD. Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC. 4Gb cards can be either SD or SDHC, but are almost always SDHC because they're cheaper. (I would avoid the rare, expensive, and problematic 4Gb SD cards.)

Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it doesn't say "SDHC" on it. (If it does, it probably means that they made a 4Gb card, but there were some error locations and so they disabled half of it and packaged it as a cheap-brand 2Gb.)

2. You formatted the card NTFS, whereas the camera needs FAT32. You can format the card using Windows, but there is a complication: Windows defaults to "NTFS" when formatting, but memory cards normally use FAT32. Before you attempted this, you should have connect the card, and checked the 'properties' on the drive that appears. It probably said "FAT32". In this case, you could have gone ahead and formatted the card, but be sure that you chose "FAT32" from the drop-down list. If you format it NTFS, your camera won't be able to read it!

In this case your solution would be to format the card again, but using the FAT32 format.

You might find it useful to check your camera on dpreview (dot) com, and see if the memory card type is shown as just SD or SD/SDHC.

Hi sir
#1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
# 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
# 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
# 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
# 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
# 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory card error-memory card locked. Removed new card from camera, nnlocked card, inserted card again, but received same message. Please advise.


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

If the card is brand new, try to have the phone to format it, or use the PC to format it at FAT, not FAT32 or any other file system.
